The refined pleasure of the high alpine area in Upper Engadin: Pontresina
Nestled in the Bernina massif, wild and romantic, sunny and sheltered from wind, Pontresina is said to be a place for relaxation and sports. With the destination Engadin St. Moritz, Pontresina shares thee of Switzerland’s most legendary alpine areas: Diavolezza, Corviglia and Corvatsch.
The wellness offerings of the local hotels as well as the Bellavita adventure pool and spa turn afternoons into feel-good moments. The close proximity to Italy ensures the top restaurants and long hours of sunshine. A perfect combination of excitement and relaxation. Pontresina: you’ll feel at home the moment you arrive.
The permanent presence of Piz Bernina (4.049 m), the highest peak in the eastern Alps, is a wonderful sight to behold, standing as it does alongside Palü, Roseg and Bellavista, so that climbers, mountaineers, hikers, mountain bikers, golfers and swimmers cannot help but look up in admiration from time to time. Relaxing and unwinding just doesn’t get any more impressive than this. The proximity to Italy and a favourable climate guarantee plenty of sunshine and mild, dry weather.

4. How to get to the Engadin
You can reach the Engadin with the Rhaetian Railway, via various Alpine passes or by air.
Drive here over the Julier, Albula (closed in winter) or Maloja passes or through the Lower Engadin and Silvaplana. If you come over the Julier Pass, you can see right over to the Corvatsch/Furtschellas skiing and hiking area. You can get to the Engadin by car very easily from anywhere in Switzerland, Italy, Germany or Austria. In the event of heavy snowfall, only cars with 4×4 or with snow chains are allowed to drive over the passes. Some distances and travel times:
Zurich – Silvaplana: 200 km, 3 hours
Milano – Silvaplana: 175 km, 3 hours
Munich – Silvaplana: 300 km, 4 hours
Basel – Silvaplana: 250 km, 4 hours
Bergamo – Silvaplana: 145 km, 2 1/2 hours
Como – Silvaplana: 137 km, 2 1/2 hours
The journey on Rhaetian Railways (RhB) from Chur via Tiefencastel and the Albula line into the Engadin, through spiral tunnels and over dizzying viaducts, is one of the most picturesque and fascinating examples of railway engineering anywhere in Europe. You can also travel to the Engadin from Landquart via Klosters and the Vereina tunnel. From Zurich Central Station it takes 3 hours, 21 minutes to reach St. Moritz.
You can fly from the Engadin Airport in Samedan to the international airports of Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Milan and Munich. There are also services by air taxi to many other destinations in Switzerland and other countries. More at www.engadin-airport.ch
